In the year 1901, due to a continuous growth in the population and the economy, the government in England sanctioned the building of the tramway. In July 1904, the tramline was tested and then operation commenced.
The tram line has run more of less continuously ever since, with the route expanded over the years. The trams remain one of the most iconic elements of Hong Kong Island and are a popular with both locals and tourists.
If you want a family photograph to say 'Hong Kong', the tram is certainly a fantastic choice. Not only is the tram itself iconic, the tram line runs through the heart of Hong Kong Island, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of daily life in a vibrant city.
